Photon Beard - making light work


Manufacturer of lighting for image capture


Photon Beard products are individually hand-built to the highest standards in our factory just north of London, UK and we are proud of our reputation for excellence.

We have been manufacturing in the UK since 1882 (see our history page), making us the oldest entertainment lighting company in the world.  Having been around for 130 years, our list of credits is extensive but in recent years, you will find our products in use around the world in TV studios of all sizes and for major motion picture productions.

While our past is important to us, it is our present and future that is key.  We have a host of new products just launched and more in development.  Our Tungsten Fresnel range is lighter and brighter than those of our competitors and our new IgbT dimmers provide silent dimming for ENG applications and for studios with no space for dimmer rooms.  We recently launched our Wi Light system, which provides affordable and reliable wireless DMX distribution designed specifically for the small-to-medium-sized TV studio.

Some of our products are available from our online shop and  all from our dealers who are listed within the Buy/Rent section of this site.  Smaller orders should be available from stock; however, please bear in mind that large orders may take up to 6 weeks for delivery.
